Default Advice humbly requested choosing new phone.

Hello there,

I've been trying to find a new mobile phone for myself for quite a while, and after seemingly limitless poking around on the web and in shops, I can't find one that meets my hopes.

I've eventually decided to register on this forum and ask the question because I noticed people with similar requests being helped out.

I'm looking for a bottom-end or emerging market handset, without camera, social networking, internet, apps, and so on. My hopeful requirements are:

- Battery life that lasts for a week or more.
- Can play audio files competently.
- Low price

... and if I get carried away with myself, I'd love a flashlight in the end!

Being a big Nokia fan (my last lasted over a decade) I looked there first. The Nokia 101 and X1-01 both seem to fill the spec perfectly, but further research showed the audio playing function to be half-arsed, without proper navigation of folders, or seeking within a file, making audiobooks a misery.

Oh, I'm in the UK if that matters?

Does anybody have any experience with other low-end phones that make a passable stab at being a music player too?

My thanks in advance.
